michelle obama. chris matthews? >> certainly made the connection, don't you think? i mean, so much of tonight was interactive. it was between her and that audience in the room. i thought the camera work was so important watching this on television. you saw on the faces of men and women, black and white, all different backgrounds, the connection. she was with people. the emotional connection, telling the story of her love affair with her husband. with her life of getting ahead. but there was one big difference than four years ago which just came through in the earlier speeches tonight. it was hope and change, yes, hope and change but not hope and change imaginally overnight. but hope through work and patience and time and effort and then change. i think it was a much more mature look at their own lives as they got there. i'll tell you, i assume most americans watching tonight who have been lucky in this country, have gotten close to the american dream, have done it the way they did it. with student loans. with good parents who made them study. of being parents who make their kids st
's speakers, building on the momentum of last night. how can you top michelle obama? >> believe it or not, when we were first married, our combined monthly student loan bill was actually higher than our mortgage. yeah. we were so young, so in love, and so in debt. and that's why barack has fought so hard to increase student aid and keep interest rates down. because he wants every young person to fulfill their promise and be able to attend college without a mountain of debt. so in the end, for barack, these issues aren't political. they're personal. because barack knows what it means when a family struggles. he knows what it means to want something more for your kids and grandkids. barack knows the american dream because he's lived it. and he wants everyone in this country, everyone, to have the same opportunity. he reminds me that we are playing a long game here. and that change is hard. and change is slow. and it never happens all at once. but eventually, we get there. we always do. we get there because of folks like my dad. folks like barack's grandmother. men and women who said to them
. the first lady of the united states, michelle obama, has tonight's most critical job, reminding voters why they liked her husband enough to put him in the white house, and to make the case for giving him another four years. joining us now in our coverage all of this week, anderson cooper, high above the floor. >> our new poll shows why that case is more urgent than ever for the democrat. new numbers on mitt romney's convention bounds. john, what are the numbers? >> anderson, as the democrats open their convention tonight, let's look at that very question. we know governor romney got a one-point bounce out of his convention, not so great, about half what the president got four years ago. not a big bounce. where does that leave us? the democrats' opening night two months from a critical election day. doesn't get any closer than that. 48-48. >> the convention will pay tribute to a champion of health care reform, the late senator edward kennedy, and the woman who stood by his side, vicki kennedy. >> meanwhile, the floor plan is completely different from the republican convention in tampa. sinc

[applause] >> four years ago, at this convention, i spoke with you all about how barack and i did not grow up with much in the wake of wealth. but we were blessed with a mother who taught us that education is the surest path from limited means to limitless opportunity. she inspired me to become a teacher and she inspired barack's deep commitment to giving all our young people the opportunity is our education ga
to what people are expecting from the first lady michelle obama's speech tonight. >> look, that is part of the reason for the excitement because first of all, have you these people and the configuration as you can see behind me, i'm above the podium which is a really great vantage point. as you can see, people are -- very, few people, very few delegations are actually on the floor. it is a bowl. they are up and around on the sides. that is, i think, making it sound a lot larger, louder, than it actually might be. it is very loud. they are very excited and they are not all here yet. there are a lot of empty seats. typically people are at dinner now but will be here in time for the keynote address. people are excited to hear castro the keynote speaker, but principally this is michelle obama's night. she is already throughout the campaign. they sent sought an e-mail a half hour ago asking people to text and send in $3 donations in advance of her speech. she told ryan seacrest today on his radio show she had not watched ann romney's speech and came here briefly to look at the stage and look
president doesn't change who you are. no, it reveals who you are. >> michelle obama gets personal. the first laidy on her husband' value and vision and really what was the speech of her life. >> a victory rally in canada. a politician rushed from the podium after deadly gunshots rang out. good morning ining to you. welcome to early start. i'm zoraida zam blsambolin in n york. >> i'm john berman live from the democratic national convention. this morning everyone is talking about the misses. he may be the commander in chief. but she is the mom in chief. and it's no longer clear which one of them can best sell a speech. because michelle obama was the highlight of the first night of the democratic convention with a passionate, personal appeal for her husband's re-election. to hear the first lady tell it, president obama is just like the rest of us. tonight, the big speech comes from former president bill clinton. so there is a lot to talk about. joining me now is cnn's dana bash. who's been killing it all week with us here on "early start" in the mornings. thanks for being with us again. what w
. but nothing can dampen the opening night fireworks. first lady michelle obama electrified the delegates, making the case for a second term. >> after so many struggles and triumphs and moments that have tested my husband in ways i never could have imagined, i have seen first-hand that being president doesn't change who you are. no, it reveals who you are. >> the president and first daughters watched from the white house as michelle obama talked about politics and family. >> at the end of the day, my most important title is still mom in chief. my daughters are still the heart of my heart and the center of my world. >> and the keynoter, san antonio mayor julian castro, with a personal story representing the future of the democratic party. >> my family's story isn't special. what's special is the america that makes our story possible. my mother fought hard for civil rights so that instead of a mop, i could hold this microphone. >> but the night was also about bare knuckle politics. >> he's a fine fellow and a great salesman, but as governor, he was a lot more interested in having the job th
on the personal side of her husband. tonight it is michelle obama's time and her turn. she's not going to have to work as hard to convince people that president obama is likable. check it out. in a recent "washington post" poll, 61% of registered voters said the president seems more friendly and likable compared to 27% for romney. so what does michelle obama need to say tonight to get democrats revved up, convince voters that her husband should get another four years? office? we're going to talk about it, bring in our republican consultant, cnn contributor, alex, and cow c-founder of rebu the dream. good to see you guys both. in person. i love this. cnn grill. likability. you know, alex, you're always talking about i don't have to have a beer with a guy, you know, the economy's really important. but people do want to be able to feel like the person in office gets it, they trust him, they know him well. did he do -- did ann romney do a good enough job last week not to have that be an issue this week? >> i used to work with mitt romney. i always told him if she ever primaried h, i'd vote for her
is in the spotlight. what we will hear from michelle obama. how will her speech compare with ann romney he is. personal take on her husband. >>> closing arguments as a jury is getting set to decide if drew peterson murdered his third wife. lots of news. we're glad you're with us. it is all "happening now." jenna: opening day at the democratic national convention, start of like baseball season, right? it is their tournament. their turn. i'm jenna lee. we're glad you're with us. jon: i'm jon scott. we're live in charlotte, north carolina with continuing coverage as president obama and his team make a case for a second term. this stands in stark contrast to the gop's, backs abortion rights, same-sex marriage and calls for higher taxes on the wealthiest americans. then come the speeches. tonight the first lady addresses the delegates. she is set to play up the difference between her husband and governor romney. another highlight tonight. the keynote address. san antonio mayor, julian castro, a rising young star in the democratic party is set to deliver it. he is the first latino ever tapped for t
, talking about ann romney and michelle obama working to get the voters engaged and last night she spoke on that subject specifically, and she addressed the congressional black caucus and take a listen. >> this is the movement of our era, protecting that fundamental right not just for this election, but for the next generation and generations to come, because in the end, it is not just about who wins or who loses or who we vote for on election day, it is about who we are as americans. >> anna mcpike, you have spent time covering michelle obama, and hands down the most popular obama in the country. >> no question. >> is there a risk of overusing her? a risk of using her too much? >> well, no. because what they are doing is sending michelle obama to a number of college campuses and states like north carolina and virginia and florida, places where president obama is not going because he is having bigger rallies at places like ohio state university at one of the first rallies there this summer, but while people are paying attention to the food fight going on between mitt romney and president

saying she was not doing this again. four years ago could michelle obama have pulled off ann's fire? >> i have a little bit of a soft spot for political wives. it's hard to watch someone white house who you're in love with be in a struggle that is a political campaign, so i feel her on that and i even like the fact that a political wife in this case is speaking her mind rather than being fully managed by the campaign at all times. think many of us are frustrated by how political wives sometimes get completely managed in campaigns. that said do i think michelle obama could have gotten away with these kinds of expressions of anger and irritation about how her husband was treated? no, i don't think so. i think we see clearly when michelle obama, before she was the first lady, did express even just her pride about it, that she was very much taken to task that and she was also considered maybe a liability going forward. doesn't certainly have the popularity factor that she has now back then. and the first lady, though, one thing she's done as first lady is championed for school nutrition as pa
. his brother is in politics as well. michelle obama has a speech in prime time and her job will be very similar to ann romney's job, which is accent wait the personal and highlighting president obama as a father and family man. dana bash, what do you expect her to say? >> looking back four years ago, she was kind of seen as a potential liability. she was kind of harsh and the goal was to soften her. >> now she's so much more popular -- >> he wishes he had her approval numbers. >> which tends to happen with first ladies. kind of val dater for her husband. and her speech will talk about her own accomplishments and some of the things she's done in the white house with children and with -- >> the whole health. >> nutrition and things like that. those are some of the things i'm told she'll talk about. >> the big event will be julian castro's speech. i didn't realize that's the first time a latino -- that stuns me for democrats and republicans. i find it shocking. >> it is given how important that section of the electorate is. he's 37 years old. he's an identical twin. >> his brother likes to

on the the teleprompter. you see that to the side of michelle obama. reading off of a teleprompter is an unnatural act. it's not easy to do. you have to move your head back and forth and keep following along and engage the audience at the same time, which is not easy, and engage the television audience. she's getting applause right now. >> and she's practicing a little bit. as important as the reception she gets for the 20,000 or 25,000 delegates and guests inside the arena, what's sho much more important is the reception sh gets from the 40 or 50 million viewers out there, many of them still undecided. >> and i think the bar is set pretty high for her. she now has this many years later quite a bit of public speaking experience. she tends to do pretty well, i think you'll agree, when she's speaking at events. large events, small events. thinks going to be one of the speeches most anticipated throughout this entire week. >> and ann romney gave a good speech in tampa. >> both will reach out to the all important women voters. president obama has a dozen point lead in the polls when it comes to women. ann rom
